'Stop the Bleed' Training Continues With JHF Support
The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh offered free training for people without a medical background to provide life-saving aid to victims of severe trauma.
The March 19 session, held at Rodef Shalom, is part of the ongoing "Stop the Bleed" program, supported by the Jewish Healthcare Foundation since 2016.
The Jewish Federation's Security Director Brad Orsini introduced the session, led by UPMC trauma surgeons. "Stop the Bleed" shows bystanders how to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. More than 50 people received training at the Rodef event.
